Client Testimonial

“HSBC’s Mental Health First Aiders across the Private Banking division attended the CMHA’s 60 minute skills refresher course, which was excellent. It provided really practical tips on how Mental Health First Aiders can best support their colleagues in the current pandemic, as well as look after themselves.
Our attendees not only valued the chance to refresh their skills and make it relevant for the current environment, but they also appreciated the opportunity to share their Mental Health First Aid experiences and learn from each other."   Rob L Embury,  Country Head, Corporate Client Group and Wealth Client Group, Private Banking, HSBC UK Bank plc
